Nice looking brew there, man. Well done. With regards to head retention, try adding some flaked grain such as flaked millet. I have just done an American Amber with a hand full of I untoasted oats. It's only been in the keg two days, but the wee sample I pulled off had a whooping head on it and stayed. So I am thinking if it had been bottled, it would have been even better once poured. You can also try different candi syrups for colouring, too. Other that advice, all looks good.

Which exactly grains do you use. I'm assuming also GF and a handful a cup or a pound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use buckwheat. Malted and roasted. I find I get more flavour from them by using mostly crystal. The amount I use is dependant on the brew size. For a 5 Imperial Gallon batch I use 2kg of grain, along with other adjuncts to increase alcohol and add colour.
